Well a bit internet famous at least  Cheers to everyone who sent in footage to help patchwork this episode together. Nationals was awesome this year and the Rorooze, Lenny, Bill, Geneterror, Hook and everyone else did a fantastic job. Casuals was great too and was really cool to catch up with you guys.

It's been awesome being a part of this community. The greater NZ scene inspired for my own small scene in Christchurch after playing you guys online back when HD Remix and SF4 came out. Then going to Nationals and meeting all you guys in real life really inspired me to keep improoving my game, create my own events and help buld a Christchurch scene.

I'm moving to Germany with my family in late November so if I didn't get the chance to say goodbye at Nats. Laters C**ts! Just kidding Tongue out I'll still post on this forum. But still, I hope see you guys in a few years at another kick ass fighting game event in New Zealand, still Damaging!

Cheers Guys

King of Chinatown FairI have been following the release of this film with great interest, it's been getting great writeups and I'm looking forward to seeing how they treat the subject matter.

Here's the preview description from
"The world of Video Games is currently a billion dollar industry, which profits off fans both young and old. Since it’s creation, a subculture has formed which looks to make playing Video Games a career rather than a hobby. Their goal is to turn "Gaming" into a legitimate sport, where money can be made through competitions, endorsements, and sponsorships. One of the largest communities within this subculture is the “Fighting Game” community.
In order to make a name for one’s self in the “Fighting Game” community; players must start in small arcades and work their way through both local and sponsored tournaments. The largest event is this community is known as the Evolution Tournament, or “EVO”.

This is Justin Wong’s story as he attempts to work his way through the “Fighting Game” scene with the release of "Street Fight IV". Justin's goal is to make playing Video Games competitively his full time career."

And a youtube preview here:

I will most likely grab this over the weekend so I will post up some impressions once I have had a chance to watch it.
